Chopard launches the new Classic Racing Superfast Chrono
February 2011: For over two decades, Chopard has demonstrated an unfailing attachment to the world of classic and racing cars. This passion is echoed in a range of classic yet sporty watch collections intended for elegant and sophisticated men with an extremely active lifestyle. A star model in their Classic Racing Collection is the new Classic Racing Superfast Chrono - an ultra-powerful chronograph with an imposing 45 mm-diameter case.
Its ‘motor’, a mechanical self-winding chronograph movement with a 42-hour power reserve, drives the hour and minute functions, along with small seconds at 3 o’clock and an instant-jump date display through a window at 6 o’clock. The hour-markers are reminiscent of the markings on classic car dashboard instruments, such as rev counters and speedometers.
The imposing 47.80 mm steel case is fitted with the famous rubber strap featuring the 1960s Dunlop Racing tyre-read motif. The pushers are in black rubber-moulded stainless steel, as is the screw-lock crown reminiscent of a tyre and adorned with a metal appliqué bearing the Classic Racing collection steering-wheel emblem.
